Have you recently learned that your stained teeth cannot be fixed with a bleaching treatment? Or perhaps you injured your teeth in an accident. Don’t worry; there are solutions: dental bonding or dental veneers. But which one should you choose? Well, it depends on what you want.
Dental bonding uses composite resin to literally bond to the surfaces of your teeth – the same material used for tooth-colored fillings. It can restore chipped or cracked teeth, fill in gaps, or cover misshapen or discolored teeth. If you care for your teeth well, a bond can last 10 years or longer. If you smoke, however, you’ll find that the bond work may turn yellow along with the rest of your teeth.
Veneers are thin shells of durable porcelain glued to the faces of your teeth. They conceal stains and protect chipped or misshapen teeth. These veneers are unreceptive to most new stains and can endure 10 to 15 years or even longer.
